I just finished drinking a loose version of Davylp25ís Super Fat Burning juice. Loved it!
I had a cup of cranberry tea left from yesterday. The tea bags are so expensive I couldnít dump it out. I put the cold tea in the blender. There was a big box on the counter with 6 hard little dates left in the bottom, time to get rid of those. I dumped the dates in the blender with the tea and let them soak while I thought about what else I could add to make a tasty smoothie.
I remembered islesgirl had blogged recently about Davylp25's Super Fat Burning juice. I had not made it for many months. Her blog reminded how much I enjoyed it. And I had all the ingredients. So, I juiced two small grapefruits and half a lemon, put the juice in the blender with the tea and dates, added about a half cup of cranberries, a teaspoon of kelp powder, and a Tablespoon of coconut oil.
At first the coconut oil didnít blend in. It floated on the top in white clumps. A little more blending took the chill of the grapefruit juice (the grapefruits had been in the fridge before being juiced) and the coconut oil blended in nicely. So delicious!
I didnít want to ruin it by adding the cayenne. Instead I swallowed a dose of cayenne that I had put in gel caps along with turmeric and ginger powders. These spice supplement caps had been sitting around, forgotten. Some months ago a friend told me that cayenne is good for boosting circulation, another friend told me it works best synergistically with ginger and turmeric. This is a good time of year to boost the circulation. My hands and feet are always cold.
Now, if I only had an herbal solution for boosting my memory so I could remember to take the caps with a meal. No worries about that for now. Iíve got an entire bag of grapefruits and a bag of cranberries in the fridge. I plan on enjoying this delicious smoothie with a circulation boosting spice cap for breakfast every day until I run out of grapefruits and cranberries. That should be in about a week, right before Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas, this would make a delicious cocktail-type beverage for me at our Christmas Eve party. It is in less than a week! It is time to start thinking about what raw deliciousness I'm going to make for myself that will be better than any cooked dish on the table. Maybe I will even share with anyone at the party that is interested in trying my drink and food. MAYBE....
